About the Company

When you look at a waste picker, what do you see, feel, and think? Do you smile and thank them for providing an invaluable service to our community by clearing the man-made mess on the streets and in our homes? Do you recognise their occupation as a noble venture that saves us from potential toxicity? Could they be just like you with hopes, dreams, and demanding waste collection schedules? At Mr. Green Africa (MGA), we acknowledge their value.

At MGA we have designed a human-centred business model that illustrates that shared value at its best. We incentivise marginalised waste pickers and base of the pyramid stakeholders by offering premium prices and added benefits for their service. This restores their dignity, improves their lives and cleans up our environment, while at the same time providing a continuous supply of valuable recyclable plastic to Mr. Green Africa.

Mr. Green Africa processes the recyclable material into valuable raw material and feeds it back into plastic manufacturers’ supply chains to enable them to achieve circular economy goals and benefit from raw material cost savings while simultaneously creating a positive environmental impact. For this endeavor and journey ahead, we are looking for passionate people with a genuine heart, fun spirit and who also believe in doing well by doing good and want to use their skills in a more purposeful working life.
